Can You Paint With All The Colors Of The Wind?

I regret to inform you that this morning the Mothership of all tragedies occurred: my dog ate one of my shoes for breakfast. Yeah, for real. And not just any shoe. We are talking an irreplaceable vintage shoe. The kind of shoe that when you wear it people say things like, "I love your shoes! Where ever did you get those?" And you respond very casually with, "Oh thanks, I actually found them at a thrift store..." and in shock they say, "No way! How did you find them?!" And then, after a momentary pause to heighten suspense, you say, "Oh- I don't know. I just happened to be in the right place, I guess," shrugging it off with true humility and then fading into the crowd like the unsung hero that you are...

Anyway, I happened upon the picture above while perusing Tumblr the other day- and I am pretty sure that girl is wearing my very same vintage Calico's- may they RIP. 

Onto other things, I decided recently that there are two kinds of people in the world: those who primarily dress according to color and those who primarily dress according to shape. And, as it turns out, I am a shape person. I will always choose the sweater that fits well over the one that actually compliments my outfit, color-wise. I know some of you are probably thinking: I dress according to shape and color. And to that I say, good for you, maybe you should go on Project Runway! But anyway, the reason I'm saying all of this is because the Sartorialist posted some Fendi runway shots with fantastic color combinations that could really help a color challenged sister like myself.

On a side note: I was informed recently that it is "frowned upon" to post pictures without naming the source, which was devastating news to me because I don't want people frowning when they read this blog- unless it is to contemplate something deep that I just said. So rest assured, friends. We are giving photo cred now.

You'll see that life is still worthwhile,
If you just smile.



  1. Ha, I enjoyed this post. Wonderful humor.

  2. Oh, and that stinks about your shoes. At least a light hearted post came out of it. :)

  3. I feel the same way about my pheasant sweater.
